Harcourt Mountain Bike Trails

Hold onto your handlebars, the Harcourt Mountain Bike Trails at La Larr Ba Gauwa Park are ready to ride!

Under the sponsorship of The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP): the park was opened to riders at noon of Friday 9 March, 2018.

La Larr Ba Gauwa Park includes 34 kilometres of mountain bike trails that take advantage of the area’s stunning views and unique rock features. The park has eleven trails that cater to riders of all abilities from beginner to advanced.

The park’s name comes from the words ‘Stones and Mountain’, in the Dja Dja Wurrung language. The Dja Dja Wurrung people are the traditional owners of the country on which the mountain bike park trails are situated. The unique trail head shelter has been built to  a design supplied by the Dja Dja Wurrung Aboriginal Corporation.

There is no car parking for bike riders at La Larr Ba Gauwa Park. If you come by car, follow the road signs from the Calder Freeway to the parking area in the village of Harcourt, opposite the CFA. Then, ride purpose-built off-road path that runs alongside Market Street and Picnic Gully Road, taking you directly to the mountain bike trail head.

Trail maps are available in the township and on site as well as by a More to Explore app. Toilets are  located at the township as well as at the trail head. A bike repair station is sited at the trail head.

The official park website is still under development. As it evolves, you can still find out more on the DELWP website.
